NY State Solar is working with local installers, non-profits, community advocates, state and federal agencies to help residential and business owners make the transition to solar.
We are dedicated to environmental and financial sustainability helping the state of New York surpass it’s goal of 50% renewable energy production by 2030.

Programs we Facilitate

Today we have the opportunity of transitioning to clean and renewable electricity often below current market rates. Making solar one of the most affordable and sustainable options available now.

WHO WE ARE

N.Y. State Solar is an organization established for the purpose of bringing together people looking to adopt solar with local New York State certified installers approved through the NY-Sun program. We make solar ownership more affordable and easier to adopt by educating homeowners on subsidized programs available to them as an alternative to the private lease companies or personal loans that often come with high interest rates and difficult transfer terms.

OUR GOAL

To provide the opportunity and assist our New York communities in making a positive environmental and economic impact as the State transitions to more sustainable and renewable energy sources.

“We previously set a goal that 50 percent of New York’s energy must come from renewables by 2030. This year it’s no longer a goal — it is now a requirement. And it makes New York the nation’s leader in the fight against climate change and that’s something we should all be proud of.” – Governor Cuomo, State of State Address Jan 14th 2016

Now is a great time to take action. For yourself, your pocketbook, your family and loved ones, and the world. The last decade has seen major advances in production and manufacturing significantly reducing equipment costs and leveling the energy rate playing field. Solar and other renewable forms of electric generation are no longer a luxury, high-price option. Grid Parity has arisen in almost a quarter of the States so far.

The energy choices we make today impact the sustainability of our lives for tomorrow. It;s not hard, it’s just a bit confusing to navigate the red tape, which is what here to do for you!

INVEST IN THE FUTURE

Do the right thing and benefit financially!

Now more than ever, people are making the choice to invest in their future. A future with less pollution and environmental damage. A sustainable future built on the foundation of renewable energy production and the power of the sun.

ENERGY EMPOWERMENT

Domestic on-site power production!

A distributed energy grid and production are the keys to America’s power independence. While natural gas has recently helped drive down the cost of coal and nuclear power sources, the environmental damage from fracking and the constant upkeep in pipelines and infrastructure is always increasing.

SAVE MONEY

Take control of your power bill!

The current market forces have minimized the soft costs of going solar and have created a fair playing field for the homeowner to now enjoy the benefits of 20-30% savings off of current electric bills with predictable and locked-in electricity rates.

Your decision to go solar has such a profound impact
